Deanna Haunsperger is an American mathematician and Professor of Mathematics at Carleton College.[1] She is the president of the Mathematical Association of America for the 2017–2018 term.[2] She co-created and co-organized the Carleton College Summer Mathematics Program for Women, which ran every summer from 1995 to 2014.[3]

Education[edit]

Haunsperger received her Bachelor of Arts in mathematics and computer science from Simpson College in 1986. She received her Masters in mathematics in 1989 and her Ph.D. in mathematics in 1991 from Northwestern University.[4] Her dissertation was entitled Projection and Aggregation Paradoxes in Nonparametrical Statistical Tests and her advisor was Donald Gene Saari.[5][6]

Career[edit]

Haunsperger was an assistant professor of mathematics at St. Olaf College from 1991 to 1994.[4] Since 1994, she has been a faculty member in the mathematics department at Carleton College.[1][4]

From 1995 to 2014, Haunsperger directed the Carleton College Summer Mathematics Program for Women. This program worked to prepare undergraduate women to pursue a Ph.D. in mathematics.[3][7]

Awards and honors[edit]

From 1999 to 2003, Haunsperger was a co-editor of Math Horizons, a magazine aimed at undergraduate students who are interested in mathematics.[2]

Haunsperger was the second vice-president of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) from 2006 to 2008. She was elected president of the MAA for the 2017–2018 term.[2][2]

Haunsperger has won several awards from the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). In 2012, she was selected for the M. Gweneth Humphreys Award, which recognizes mathematics educators who have exhibited outstanding mentorship.[8] She was presented with the second annual AWM Presidential Award in 2017.[citation needed] In 2017, she was selected as a fellow of the AWM in the inaugural class.[9]
